Recent Review: JES sent a structural engineer to assess my problem.   My home had developed cracks where the walls meet the ceiling and that problem was getting worse almost day to day.   The engineer determined that the beam under this house was sinking - 3/4" - because the builder put supports every 12 feet apart instead of the 8 feet-10 feet which was required. I phoned the company, they gave me the first 2 dates when they would be able to do their work.   They came on 3/21 to dig holes and fill those holes with concrete to hold the new jacks.   A week was needed for the concrete to cure and they returned on 3/28 to use those jacks to hoist the beam back into place.   They then shimmed up the older supports so they would share the weight of the house. The workmen were all professional and friendly - they answered my questions and explained exactly what they were doing. Scheduling the time of day for workers to arrive could have been a problem.   I was told they would be here around 8:30 AM for their first visit.   Then several days before that date, someone called me and said they would be here at 1:00 PM.   I planned to leave home that morning, returning before 1:00, but I didn't - and it's a good thing because I got a call from a member of the crew.   He apologized for being late, said they had some problem with their truck but they were on their way and would be there soon.   Had I left that morning, I would have missed their phone call and no one would have been here to grant them access to the crawl space.
